Thermometer for the blind / product design

Thermometer for the blind
Thermometer for the blind

This design is based on the principle of thermal expansion and cold contraction. The round dot in the center will be convex when body temperature exceeds 37 °C, but it will keep concave with a normal body temperature. A blind person can know whether his body temperature is normal with a simple touch on it.
There is a medicine-containing device inside the thermometer. When the temperature of the blind is not normal, the round dot will bulge and one just needs to press it down, then a piece of pill will fall into the blind's hand from the bottom of thermometer, which solves the problem synchronously that blind people take medicine.
